Veranda Grand Baie

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Overlooking the beautiful bay of Grand Baie, the Veranda Grand Baie Hotel & Spa is bursting with Creole charm and is ideally located for exploring the nearby restaurants, bars and shops. All rooms have been sumptuously decorated with cool, soothing tones and are dotted amongst the grounds. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink from your private balcony or terrace, admiring stunning views of the surrounding gardens or swimming pool. Water sports are, of course, in ample supply. Windsurfing, kayaking, snorkelling and pedal boats are complimentary, as is a glass-bottom boat ride so you can admire life below the waves without getting wet! Pay a bit extra and you can join PADI qualified instructors on diving expeditions and water-ski to your heart’s content. Whilst parents are lounging beside one of two pools, the Timomo Kids Club will keep little ones entertained with a whole range of exciting activities. There’s also the delightful Seven Colours Wellness Spa should a spot of pampering, well-deserved no doubt, appeal. Le Mon Plaisir serves a delicious range of local dishes as well as more international favourites. Belle Vue Restaurant, set right beside the ocean, is more suited to special occasions, taking you on a culinary journey you’ll never forget.

Veranda Grand Baie is one of the most amazing hotels I've ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived, the service was absolutely incredible. All the staff are so friendly and went out the way to sort anything we needed. Food was wonderful with so much choice. And the private beach was paradise. I really can't wait to return!
